I Got A New Girl Now

Sunday, December 12

First Hike
Burkhart Trail

~1.5 mi total

No, not my first hike -- my new hiking buddy Rosie's first hike! And her first time walking on a leash, as a matter of fact! I was very pleased with how well she did. I'm also happy to report that despite her dog-in-training status (which makes her a dits), she is well on her way to being a lady -- she instinctively knows to step OFF the trail to potty! I still have splits in my fingers keeping me off the 'puter, so enjoy the pictures...

The newest member of the family.

So small! (Nine weeks old.)

Posing on the bench at the loop/Burkhart trail junction.

Come on, let's go!

Teaching her not to go over the edge!

A lovely walk on a beautiful winter's day.

Can you hear the water?

Okay, now SHE wants to rest! Didn't you just drag me away from the bench view?

No, really -- I'm just a little puppy. I can't go far!

Okay, I'll take a pano of the view while you rest.

She made it all the way to the water tank -- seven-tenths of mile.
Not bad for a little puppy!

The Punchbowl is a perfect place for any level of hiking...
and it was a good place for a baby's very first walk!
